Intimate date with the waterfall

Taiwan Traveli?sAttraction - Songlong tribe villagei??TaiwanDay

The Songlong Tribe village, located in Sun-Link Forest and Nature Resort, was finished being constructed in May 2012. Taking a narrated tram, guides will give a tour of the forested mountain scenery, where you can view the wooden trails down below as well. To maintain the natural environment, private vehicles are forbidden in most parts of the reserve, therefore visitors can choose between trekking and taking the narrated tram to experience the natural forests.

Once the tram arrives at the Songlong Tribe village, you will come across a giant wood-carving standing 12m tall and 1.5m wide, etched with a combination of various aboriginal tribal designs. The piece only required 11 hours by a team of skilled craftsmen to be completed.
Walking along the gravel path, pass the 99 suspension bridge and you will be met with the showers of Songlong Yan Waterfall straight ahead. Feeding diamond fish create flickers of lights under the radiant waterfall, as they overwhelm the current by surging forward.

Head up the trail and you will come across Shuiliandong, a large cave with stalactites hanging from its roof formed by the Aeolian process. The little holes beneath your feet are the result of erosion due to the dripping water. When it rains, a water curtain is formed. Walk out from the cave and get a clearer picture of the Songlong Yan Waterfall, bringing a fresh breeze as the water hits the surface.

What makes this place unique is the fact that visitors can view the waterfall up at a close distance, overwhelming them by its beauty. Another defeatless match is the availability of negative ions, a�?Vitamins in the air.a�? These ions can reach up to 100,000 ions during rainfall, while the detector measured a healthy 58,000 ions on this trip. Large amounts are healthy for the body, making you feel at ease when standing under the waterfall.
